“Spacious apartment, home from home.”
Reviewed 12 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

This was a fab place to stay and central to Main Street with plenty of mini markets around as well as places to eat if you didn't want to cook. The apartment has everything you need so its like a home from home.
Contact with Karen was very good, she was there to meet us at the apartment to go through everything and was at the end of the phone if we needed anything.

“Fabulous large apartment and unbeatable location”
Reviewed 22 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Spent some time at this apartment as we were visiting Gibraltar for a wedding.
The apartment is really spacious and well furnished and the master bedroom en suite bathroom is huge and better quality than most 4 star hotels.
The apartment is completely smack bang in the center of town but is also very quiet in the evening / at night so a good nights sleep was had by all each night too.
The owners were really helpful and made sure we were comfy and had all the info we needed as to attractions etc and what was happening around town. The also recommended some great restaurants which were all within a few minutes walk from the apartment.
We would certainly book this apartment again if returning to Gibraltar.

“Lovely apartment and very handy for the centre.”
Reviewed 23 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We booked the apartment for ourselves and my adult son for a few days while in Gibraltar for a family wedding. It was absolutely brilliant. Well equipped and having the 2 bathrooms is a great bonus when you have several adults staying. The kitchen has just about everything you need - full sized cooker, washing machine and plenty of cooking utensils, crockery etc.

The apartment beautifully clean, is well furnished and comfortable. Although there is no air conditioning there are ceiling fans which we found kept us cool, along with the breeze from the windows and patio doors. It's on the 4th floor which is great from a security point of view - you can leave windows open if you want to.

It is quite close to the airport but don't be put off - there are only a few flights a day and you simply don't notice them at all. The town centre is just a short walk away and the bus stops really close as well. Ocean Village is right next door so easy for bars etc. Plus you can pay to use their pool facilities so it's as good as being in the same complex.

Making the booking was very simple and the owner, Jackie, makes sure you get the keys in plenty of time. She is really helpful and will provide any details you need.

All told this is a really great apartment and I would certainly look at renting it again if we return to Gibraltar.

The apartment was lovely and modernised, only downside was no aircon but we knew this before booking. It was in a perfect location but my parent in laws did struggle with the stairs. We had a wonderful stay in Gibralter and the owners were extremely helpful.

“Good apartment, a few tips which I am sure will be taken up.”
Reviewed 5 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in this apartment for 8 nights at the beginning of June 2015
The apartment is perfectly placed in town for exploring around all areas of Gibraltar on foot.
There are plenty of shops, restaurants and pubs on your doorstep, though you will have to take a wander round to Morrison's for fresh milk, but it's not far. Nothing is too far in Gibraltar. IT is an excellent place for a relaxing holiday, or for exploring the history of the place - it's very eventful!
So on to the apartment. It was nicely laid out, spotlessly clean when we arrived and nicely furnished inside.
The stairs - three flights but you will soon get used to them - the owner described as "Beirut" which I thought was harsh because it's a building lived in by locals who want to put their own stamp on the place.
When we arrived and the owner saw there were only three of us instead of six she took half the towels and put them away, which I found a bit odd. We had paid the full asking price, so why put some things away?
The kitchen is big, but I had to move things around a little in the cupboards because the cupboards are occupied with personal things and cleaning equipment. It is a common mistake in holiday accommodation to not leave room for food. The worktop has been burned by a careless guest, and there is a sign up asking people not to put pots on the worktop. It might be an idea to provide some trivets for pots to help people comply. Oven gloves would be good too.
The kitchen is well equipped, three rings on the hob work, which is plenty because really you don't need to cook when you have Paparazzi restaurant downstairs ( it's fantastic) and the Cheers cafe over the street ( cheaper than the main street and a great choice for breakfast or lunch)
The bathroom by the front door smells of dodgy drainage when not used, so make sure someone in your party has a shower there each day.
We were only allowed to use lamps in the living room as the overhead lighting was "dodgy" and is labelled so you don't forget.
My top tip for remembering which way around the keys work - it's 50p to get in the right way up, by the time you reach the front door it's a pound upside down.

We really enjoyed our stay, and while there were some maintenance and storage things that could have been improved, I am 100% sure that the owner will act on them and get them fixed for new guests. We would definitely use the apartment next time we are in Gibraltar.
I have rated it as average, because it is a good apartment, and akin to anything we have booked via Tripadvisor or otherwise.

p.s. Karen very kindly let us leave our luggage in the stairs after our 10 a.m. check out.
p.p.s. if you phone for a taxi it costs £5 more. There is a taxi rank one minute walk away next to the Plaza, take one from there to get back to the airport.

Hi
Thanks for your review and we are glad that you enjoyed this fabulous value accommodation in Gibraltar.
The mention of "Beirut" on entering the block was of course meant as a private little joke between the two of us and not in any way shaper form to be taken seriously but may way of explaining that though I'd like to smarten up the apartment block entrance, this is out of my control! So sorry you took it the wrong way a sit was no intended as a slight but a light hearted joke!
The overhead concealed lighting behind coving (one of our many attractive features) were fixed by an electrician 2 days after you left; these were temporarily out of order and are often admired by ur guests.
We have looked through the little suggestions you offer and have added oven gloves and mats for hot pots.
regarding the slight smell from the smaller bathroom; this was due to the original plumbers not putting in a U bend under the sink we discovered!! This has been remedied.

“Great Apartment, Great Location”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

Firstly a big thank you to Karen & Rob for the use of their superb apartment.

We were 4 adults, celebrating a 50th birthday with a week's stay in Gibraltar. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay. We were central to everything, Shops, bars, Restaurants, Marina's and attractions, with only a short hop to the beaches (opposite side of the rock).
The location of the apartment offers a quiet evening/night retreat allowing a peaceful nights sleep after a hard day enjoying the delights of Gibraltar.
The apartment itself has everything you need with the comfort and convenience to boot.

I would also like to say that all communication prior to our stay was faultless and Karen met us at the apartment upon our arrival exactly as planned.

We would not hesitate in booking again when we next visit Gibraltar.
